drawing #70

I thought it was time to get a nicer scan of a drawing. This drawing was shared a couple posts down. I like the photo look, it feels closer to the more real feeling of holding the drawing. But it's also nice to analyze an accurate representation of it scanned in.

It's my delightful little boy drawn with a mechanical pencil on a 9"x12" sketchbook. Yes, it was from a photograph, we were lucky to get him to hold still for the split second it takes to get a photo a 4 hour drawing session is probably unrealistic. I did get a quick life drawing once while he paused to watch a few seconds of a show, I'll try to share someday.

All tied up

 My latest and greatest cover for The Weekly Standard. I am really happy with how this turned out and with a mere 24 hours turnaround time. I took a little time to get inspired while I waited for the final concept and it really paid off I felt. Went really smooth.

My favorite little man

Hopefully it doesn't bother anyone if I share posts across my different outlets.

I drawing I was working on last night. My wife says an eye is off, I don't see it but I've been staring at it for a few hours so she is probably right. Funny how a slight angle to the head makes measuring so much more complex. I'll scan this one in sometime soon so you can get the full look.

Also, people frequently ask about my tool. This is the drafting pencil that I use 90% of the time on my drawings. It uses tiny .5 size lead, makes it hard to kill in large areas but has a nice tight clean line.
